Wyoming Coroner: Gabby Petito Died of Strangulation

The Wyoming coroner on Tuesday announced Gabby Petito died of strangulation.

“Our initial determination is the body was in the wilderness for three to four weeks” before she was found, Teton County Coroner Brent Blue told reporters.

Dr. Blue said no other information will be released about the autopsy due to state law.


Last month the FBI confirmed the dead body found in a “very remote” area in the Grand Teton National Park on Sunday is indeed 22-year-old Gabby Petito.

Petito and her fiancé, 23-year-old Brian Laundrie, were on a cross-country trip from New York to Oregon when 22-year-old Gabby disappeared.

A witness tipped off law enforcement and said they saw the white 2012 Ford Transit the two were traveling in near Spread Creek on August 27.

Petito’s family reported Gabby missing on September 11, a couple weeks after she last spoke with her mom.

Brian Laundrie is currently on the run and has seemingly disappeared.
